We purchased the farm house in 2006 and slowly and lovingly, sympathetically to tradition, restored it over the years. The old barn has been converted into 2 gites,which are now available for rental.

What initially attracted us to the area was a love of the outdoors, as we are keen walkers. The flora and fauna is amazing and views to die for. It was love at first sight.

Early retirement from the teaching profession has enabled us to divide our time between France and England.

Why ANDREW DARE chose Haute-Loire

The gites are popular both with families and couples.Guests return for the tranquility that this setting affords.

For walkers the St Jacques de Compostelle passes the house and there is easy access to numerous walks and trails straight from the house without the need to drive. The house offers stunning views of the nearby Ardeche mountains from the terrace.

What makes this apartment unique

For us the house is unique, set in a medieval village, fantastic walking, stunning scenery and restaurants to die for all on our doorstep. We are sure that you will fall in love with it too!

Stunning location with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

Received a warm welcome from friendly and helpful owners. Accommodation spotlessly clean and well maintained. Particularly liked the outside space and views from the large, well furnished terrace. Excellent base for walking and other outdoor pursuits. Had a great holiday and will definitely go again. Would definitely recommend.

The gite is located in a beautifully restored old farmhouse set in the medieval rural village of Roche-en-Regnier at 900 metres.There are wonderful views of the Ardeche mountains and the St Jacques de Compostelle walking trail passes directly in front of the house.
